The Spanish documentary 'Nicaragua, Homeland Free to live', milestone in the protests

The documentary "Nicaragua, Homeland Free to Live", carried out by the poet and journalist Andalusian Daniel Rodríguez Moya, has become one of the flags that exiles nicides wave these days in Costa Rica. Awarded at the Invisible Film Festival of Bilbao, it has now been made more than visible thanks to the forcefulness and depth of its images, which travel the events lived in Nicaragua during the popular rebellion of 2018.

As the writer Sergio Ramírez specifies in the documentary, the protest was born against a neoliberal measure of Ortega that directly affected Nicaraguan families.

"I did the documentary with the idea of contributing to the memory in Nicaragua, so necessary to break up once with the historical cycles of violence, cycles of dictatorships, caudillos, revolutions, new dictatorships ... to contribute a grain of sand in construction Of the bases of a country that deserves no repetition and justice, and for that it is fundamental non-impunity, "summarizes the documentaryist for the world after covering the opposition march in San Jose, where his work continues.

The fact that he has become one of the milestones of exile protests not only excites the Andalusian poet, who sold his publisher of poetry in Granada to face the challenge of telling Nicaragua. "Also responsibility, I never thought, when I decided to undertake this work, which would have this journey, who would receive so much love, appreciation and gratitude," says Rodríguez Moya.

Faced with the loneliness of exile and the frames of international powers, Nicaraguan activists have found a tool in the documentary so that their suffering does not fall into oblivion.

"Daniel, you are on the right side of history," highlighted the collectives of human rights during the film exhibition at Magaly cinema, in the center of San José, last Thursday. On the other side, the "idiot left" is located, the term coined by the prestigious Sofia Montenegro sociologist, whose appearance in the documentary to criticize those who continue to support the Sandinista regime for the supposed ideology of it tore a clamorous ovation.

One of the most exciting moments for Rodríguez Moya and the niche exiles was lived during the projection in Upala, a few kilometers from the border with Nicaragua. There they remain 300 peasants exiled in an improvised camp, where they want to continue living on earth, another different than Daniel Ortega intended to snatch them with the grant of pharaonic channel to the polemic Chinese businessman Wang Jing.

At the forefront of the camp remains Ramírez girl, another of the rebel myths of Nicaragua. The peasant leader appears in the documentary, in the midst of the protests and before the exile of it. She protected himself in a security house, which agreed by the Andalusian poet.

"Seeing Doña Excited Girl Remembering under what conditions that interview was made, when she was at the point of sight, not to be imprisoned but directly murdered, it has been really unpayable, we were able to chat after all that has happened in these three years and I I remain with the conviction that the fight in exile is stronger than ever, despite how hard it is being ", bet Rodríguez Moya.

State safety persecuted Spanish documentalists, who were forced to flee across the border of Costa Rica. "We managed to go out and take out the material," he ends.
